I have a very simple database with one record for each hiking trail. I'd like to have a drop-down list on my layout that would list all of the "name" fields I have. When I select a particular name, it would go to that record.

Of course when I add a new record, the list must be updated.

Not sure what I did before but I got a dropdown list, but when I selected the name it just changed the contents of the name field of the current record to the one I chose instead of actually going to that record.

I'm sure this is very simple but it's too tough for me.

Thanks

I would recommend entering find mode (from the View menu) and then selecting the drop-down list. This will create a find request rather than modifying a record. Then, you can perform the find (Find button in the Status Area on the left) and be transported to the record you selected from the drop-down list.

I think you need a relationship, value list and a Portal.

Post a copy of your file and we'll see what we can do to get you started.
